1st Gardner AB: He makes getting thrown out during routine grounders look special.

2nd Gardner AB: Umpire fails to recognize Gardner's Greatness and gives him a "rookie called strike".

In Scranton, that's a base on balls, two stolen bases and a score on the ensuing ground out.

We was robbed.

Any of you guys who think that the Constant Gardner is going to hit, is nuts. I'll wager he goes 0-16, minimum. And if he gets a hit, it will because he beats out some dribbler.

Take a look at the under 26 year olds playing now for Texas or Tampa, and then tell me we have compaable young players.

They have guys who play like all stars. I mean: 9,10 pitch at bats, followed by a double.

We bring up a Christian and a Gardener. They do nothing and go back to Scranton.

I'm at Rays/Sox. This is weirder than the first time ARod saw Madonna's cootch.
